    I don't have a text. i'm supposed to look it up online. i'm not sure-it would either be a good or bad reaction.

    ok. About apartheid...I've learned that it was the legal separation of whites and blacks.

    What else do you know about apartheid?

  • social studies - ,

    um...i'm not sure. Well, they had separate places-like schools, beaches, and stuff like that, for blacks and whites. whites were said to be better than blacks, even though they weren't. surprisingly enough, it was legal.

    But I don't know what the Western viewpoint is, so...

    There's your key! You said "surprisingly enough, it was legal."

    The western nations were appalled by apartheid and boycotted the products produced there. We lauded the heroes who fought against apartheid, such as Nelson Mandela and Bishop Desmond Tutu.
